Margaret James, founder and Executive Director of The Metropolitan Dream Center, tells the story of The Dream Center.
In The Right Direction
Margaret James, founder of The Metropolitan Dream Center, Inc., has been helping homeless and disadvantaged people for over forty years. As a young woman, and being influenced by her mother, she noticed that the people in her neighborhood didn’t have very much: little food, worn clothing, and no possessions. Not realizing that she was in the same state of affairs, she started sharing with others what she did have from the trunk of her car. Loading food and clothing in her car trunk, she would go and find someone else to share with. She has been going in the right direction ever since. She hasn’t stopped yet.
New demands on Margaret’s willingness to share and provide for others resulted in her founding and organizing the House of Hope Outreach Ministry at Greater Memorial Baptist Church. As that ministry grew, it provided a natural progression toward the founding and organization of The Metropolitan Dream Center, Inc.
The Dream Center’s mission is to assist people within the Dallas and Fort Worth area who are in need of help. We consider it a lofty mission as it is taken from God’s word in Matthew 25:35 (NKJ): “…for I was hungry and you gave Me food: I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in…
We are encouraged to continue toward our mission as God’s word gives us an example and promise: “…Take care of him; and whatever more you must spend, when I come again, I will repay you.” (Luke 10:35)
